Leo's Oscar speech and reading more about Valentina has really made me think more about the world we are living in and its current situation. With the economy cooled and the planet heating up (global warming is real you guys!), everyone needs to do their bit when it comes to cutting down on waste and making the fullest of what we have. With that in mind, I was more pleased to hear from Valentina and find out more about their beautiful jewellery designs.
Spoilt for choice, I went for the Princess Bracelet* which contains a silver plated alloy chain, silver-tone alloy charms and lampwork glass with sterling silver inserts beads, aka many gorgeous things making up for a great looking bracelet that is girly, feminine and just plain cute. Each bead is stunningly crafted and together they create a trendy bracelet that is bound to match all of my spring/summer looks. I went for something more pinky because rose quartz is trendy as! Additionally, a portion of all proceeds from this bracelet are donated to Fauna & Flora International, a charity working to secure a healthy future for people, wildlife and wild places.
Apart from ready-made bracelets, Valentina also offers a range of style packs to enable us to build any themed bracelets or to fashion custom designs. With this in mind, I put together my own Cuff* and Necklace* as well, and I love how they came out.
If these aren't pretty enough, Valentina's aim is to address the need for sustainable jewellery and fashion accessories with beautiful, customisable and 100% nickel-free jewellery which will not only last a very long time but also is sustainable, fully recyclable and allows you to do more with less. Additionally, they donate at least 10% of all proceeds to charity, so not only are you purchasing a bracelet for life you are also helping a good cause. They also share these charities aims and try to support their goals through their own business practices; all packaging is fully recycled and 100% bio-degradable (even the bubble-wrap)!
With bracelets starting at only £33.99, you will not be breaking the bank! I don't know about you, but I am all up for helping a good cause, and if you are too this would surely make a great Mother’s Day gift or a simply a treat for yourself.
